Tying in with Kent Jones's new documentary Hitchcock/Truffaut: which documents the meeting between the two legendary auteurs and the impact of Truffaut's resulting book on film criticism and history, Picturehouse Cinemas will be screening some of the most beloved films from each director on alternate Sundays through March and April. Cineastes rejoice!
Mother's Day Special: Psycho
Alfred Hitchcock’s stunningly realised tale of gruesome murders and sly verbal sparring at the Bates Motel.
Jules Et Jim
In terms of both the inspiration for filmmakers and the public affection it engendered, this might be considered the high point of the entire New Wave.
One of Hitchcock’s most celebrated and morally complex films, with the camera restrained as tightly as the incapacitated protagonist and aligned to his privileged yet restricted point of view.
Day For Night
An enjoyable comedy about the everyday crises – emotional and practical – faced by a director, the cast and the crew as they film a soapy love story in Nice.
Recently voted the greatest film of all time by Sight And Sound, Hitchcock’s masterpiece is a typically idiosyncratic take on film noir.
The 400 Blows
Truffaut's first feature remains a fresh and vivid evocation of childhood as well as a love letter to the world of movies.
